Approach

From sea to the fairway buoy is no problem. The approach to Porthmadog is tricky, and you'd be best off with local knowledge, or follow in a local boat. Strong tidal streams with rates up to 5 knots at springs, and sand bars which move. The channel is marked during the season with small unlit buoys which have been known to move, keep a good eye on the echo sounder.

If you look at the place on the satellite you'll get the idea about how shallow it is. The current sat. picture was probably close to HW time.
